I found another place where you can find such police state like behavior--RUSSIA and Belaruse. So if you have never lived in a Police State before maybe here is the chance to see what one is like. Russian police use the exact same strategy as Australia's Victorian Police. This is obviously not a coincidence. It is an extension of a strategy known as the 'rolling roadblock'. Civilians are used by police to slow speeding motorists and if necessary form a roadblock. It's perhaps not something you are going to put in the procedure manual, but it is obviously something considered worth giving a try. If that is not a clear disconnect between the public and the police, I don't know what is. Serve and Protect.
In early 2005, Belarus was listed by the US as Europe's only remaining "outpost of tyranny".
The more I think about this video the more I realize that the case in Australia was an experimental strategy used to make a criminal collar. It wasn't some spur of the moment rash decision. It was a calculated response to use the public as human roadblocks. It still boggles my mind.

The American oligarchy spares no pains in promoting the belief that it does not exist, but the success of its disappearing act depends on equally strenuous efforts on the part of an American public anxious to believe in egalitarian fictions and unwilling to see what is hidden in plain sight. redbubblehttp://www.planetediting.com
